    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. IT TYPICAL AMERICAN TO OFFER ASSISTANCE IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY.

    THE PRINTER STILL TELLS ME THAT I HAVE THE WRONG CARTRIDGE PLACED. NEITHER A COLOR OR A BLACK ONE I MAKES NO DIFFERENCE.

    COMING SATURDAY THERE IS A BIG PCDUMP DAY IN AMSTERDAM IN A BIG BUILDING CALLED THE RAI, IT IS MOSTLY FOR NEW CAR EXHIBITION ABD THERE THEY SELL OLD STUFF LIKE COMPUTERS AND PRINTERS OF YEARS AGO FOR LESS THAN 25% OF THE NEW PRICE. I AM GOING TO LOOK THERE FOR A NEW PRINTER.

    AGAIN THANK YOU VERY MUCH. KEES VANEL (the netherlands)

    Searching through the questions, I saw your question/remark today. I'm new here :-) .

    I live in the Netherlands as well :-) .

    Maybe the questions are looked at by the ones who have interest in it.

    Did you bought an other one or do you still want some assistance to your problem ?

    What was installed the BCI-11e printhead ?, and the printer gave you a warning ? What kind of warning, amount of bleeps/blinks ?

You need a new printhead, either bc10 for black or bc-11 for color, you also need to check your owners manual to set the printer for the correct printhead type.

I just recived a used BJC-85 its is printing fine in black and white but not color whats wrong


Try some of the following possible problems:

1. Make sure the color cartridges are installed correctly.
2. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. There should be a date on the sticker on them.
3. Make sure that the cartridges are clean. Sometimes the ink can build up on the cartridges and stop ink from coming out.
4. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Find your printer and right click, then press Printing Preferences. In the options there make sure that color is selected.

BJC 85 not printing after head replacement


I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.

Beeps 3 times and power light flashes


I have not solved the problem. I just changed to a different printer. I had a bj50 printer and it use to do this and would change the printhead but they are expense and I have 3 different ones so believe it is something else that is wrong with this one.
